Small Beginnings

We did it!  After months and months of all talk and no (double strolling-) action, I finally plucked up the courage to load both kids into the double stroller - simultaneously, I must add - and head out the door.  This is huge for us, people.

Loaded up and ready to go!  K looking very suspicious of our new passenger.

We didn't go very far (we stayed within the parameters of our security complex), but our excursion was a delightful success.  No tears, no milk breaks and no nervous breakdowns - just smiles all around.  Hooray!  


All smiles.

And then I got cheeky and did it again the next afternoon...  With similar results...  Can you say "happy mama"??  So even though we're still light-years away from 10 k family runs, we made a start this weekend.  And we plan to gradually build it up over time.  Never underestimate the day of small beginnings, right?


Still smiling after Round 2.  Happiness!

In other news, K and I also clocked our longest run since J Bear's birth this weekend (we did it without J) - a whole 7 km, BOOM!  At this rate we'll be catching up to Big Dog's fitness in no time, mwuahaha...


Stretching with Mom after our 7 k run. Such a cutie!

Have a great week, everyone!

  4. You go, girl! Running with a double stroller can't be an easy task.

    1. Lol, uphills are quite a challenge, but thinking about how strong they'll make me, makes them a little less painful ;) ...
